No Comms...
 
Is it just me or has it been VERY quiet from HQ recently?

Flt Ops Update- Intermittent

Rumours of minimum age for command, 330 Capt to 380 transfer being postponed with one weeks notice to stay on a fleet with no flying, SO's being proposed but shot down by the upper management as it would be 'beneath' certain people..

Is there anybody out there???

Apparently not.............

Seems to me to be better that way!

The lack of communication is incredible. It's nice in a way that the RTGS wash up is gone, listening to the same old lines being trotted out got old quickly, but fleet facts was an interesting enough read, the weekly summary email is sporadic at best and contains almost nothing tangible (EPTs - great!). I guess even JA has to some extent given up on the place!

If there is a way to ensure apathy in the workforce, not engaging with them at all sure helps.

Actions speak louder than words. Hence why no words are required.

Tends to be what happens when bullies get exposed. They slink off and hid under their rocks.

At least we get the daily email from grouptoday to learn how to eco water our gardens....

The only day you should open the inbox is payday. Life is much more enjoyable that way. Get your updates on pprune or at the bar from the FO.

When a skipper goes around weighing individual bags at an outstation and then goes on to report it or someone goes around verifying that suitcases are locked, I am starting to think that no comms from the company is by far the better option, talk about micro-managing, that is it as its best!

Couldn't agree more. I have a friend who flew with this ASR suitcase lock skipper. Checked every one of them on both sectors and reported them all. He was writing 2 ASR's a week about it at one point. Unsurprisingly is an Aussie.. Our own worst enemies sometimes.

Too bad we don't have pigeon holes any more. Remember the sandwich saga with the looser from Italy??? I did lose some weight that time by saving the sandwiches for drop off @hq...

Can someone give us a hint who this tosser is. (actually a word which starts with a s and ends with -bag would be more appropriate).

This has to be a wind-up surely??

If this is in fact true, not only is this person a very sad and small-minded individual, but he's making us all look bad. He must be outed.

This is just all unbelievable... Some of us have been taken off courses and now threaten with this stupid and idiotic age for command rumour, together with the fact that no one has said anything at all for the courses that we were originally planned on... even if some of us have done our interviews 6 months ago!

They have lost it completely... I can tell you of at least 18 guys I have spoken from my group of friends alone, and on both 777 and A380 that will resign the very next day if they put an age requirement.

They clearly have no idea what they are doing or what they are getting into... but good luck in crewing the airplanes!

First it's a British now an Aussie. Speedbird we know you haven't any friends, stop make shite up.

Don't remember saying it was a Brit. If it's the suitcase lock thing we are talking about, I would have doubted it myself until I read it in the ASRs appearing several times. It's easy to trace one back, if you don't believe me go and search. I'm not going to copy and paste and ASR on here or share much more about the guy but I assure you it's accurate as I checked it myself.
Anyway the point is that the guy is an idiot, and EK is fast becoming a joke with zero communication. Let's not get side tracked.

I'd speculate the radio silence is just the calm before the storm. With the new Swiss chop-chopper just arriving onsite no doubt some big changes are looming that render Aussie bag-weighers inconsequential. Gee, I wonder if whatever Mueller is proposing will make things better or...the other?

Be careful what you wish for. I've got my popcorn ready.

Training college staff flying the line, no CC recruitment, reduced airframe utilisation plus a host of other things going on behind the scenes. As was explained to me "it's as if the lights have suddenly been switched on in the roach house". There are a great many in jeopardy, mostly Grade 10 and above for now as the German technocrat seeks to rid us of the plethora of useless DVSPs and the like.
Flight Ops for now is safe given that the resignation rate continues unabated and training are unable to keep pace with replacements. The baby however will most certainly be thrown out with the bath water given the perilous state the various people running their fiefdoms' inside the bouncy are feeling right now as they seek to blame....anyone else.

Like the comment about turning the lights on in a roach house. Very fitting!

777-200LR 17th Sep 2016 05:29

This age rumour has very little or no credibility. Someone above mentioned how many FOs will resign the next day if it comes into effect, what about all the mid-20s FOs joining the company now...would you like to tell them it could be over 10 years before they upgrade?
I have been wrong before, but I don't see this ever becoming more official than PPRuNe

Logically, what you say is probably correct. Except for the logically part!

He's German. But every single other word is correct.

CM talks about the burning platform. It's going to get very hot in the Castle.
There will be collateral damage as certain sects will do anything to protect their Empires.
Close the door and avail (I hate that word) a comfortable seat.
